It really is better to be lucky than good, as was proved true again by the boat I was on in a recent trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We tied or beat the other three boats in our gang the first two days! I am not sure how we wound up on the four-day total, but we got skunked the last day after being low boat with two marlin on the second day. One of the boats we had booked for the event had to cancel at the last minute. We wound up with three excellent boats and crews, and one, the one I was on, was a not so hot replacement for a very good boat and crew.
